Jaleo construction - October 2018

Jaleo on the West Side at Disney Springs is entering the closing stages of construction.

Menu items at Jaleo Disney Springs will include paella cooked over a wood fire, hand-carved Jamon Iberico de Bellota and wood-grilled Iberico pork. With five locations in the United States and Mexico City, this will be the first location in Florida. The first floor of the multi-level restaurant will feature a “grab-n-go” storefront with Spanish-style sandwiches.

Jaleo is being built on the former Wolfgang Puck site across from Splitsville.

You can now make reservations for Jaleo through the Disney website, too. I’m pretty sure that’s very recent.

This looks great. I wonder if any Dining Plan would cover it. I know that you can have 2 tapas/1 plated dish/paella for two and a dessert on the regular plan.

My wife and I went there with some friends last week. No wait at 7pm on a Monday night (at least not yet!) We ended up staying there until after 10. For 5 people we spent $300, and $70 of that was alcohol! So $230 for 5 people wasn't too bad, and we got 4 quesos, 1 paella, 10 small dishes, and 3 desserts. We had a great time and the food was good. I do think this so somewhere you should go as a group, as the small plates make it more of a sharing experience, where you just order a lot of different things and everyone tries it out. My wife and I talked after and we both agreed we would have been lost and ended up not ordering things we enjoyed if it was just the two of us.

Anyone seen any updates yet on how the dining plan will work- how many dishes you can have etc.?

Like a spice indicator system? Then no. I LOVE spicy foods and didn’t think anything was particularly spicy. The orange cheese, whose name escapes me, and it’s accompanied jam had an intense flavor, but not necessarily spicy. The wait staff know the menu very well and will offer comments and suggestions if asked.

I don't like spicy-hot foods. Are the spicy and mild menu items clearly labeled. Is everything hot. Are there items you wouldn't think would be spicy but in actuality are?

I went to Jaleo last week, AMA. Not pictured:Tortilla de patatas clássica

Yeah Jaleo has 3 onstage kitchens where most of it is done, but there must be some backstage prep kitchens. Pepe has a kitchen visible, but it may well share some of the Jaleo prep areas, I’m not sure about that.

Oh, thanks for the clarification. I thought Pepe's was just their counter service. I stand corrected!
